Great Shapes, a renegade pop band from El Paso, distinguish themselves with their unique melodic guitar soundscapes, groovy bass lines, and uptempo drums that can keep you moving all night long. Influenced stylistically by post-punk and indie pop, their contagious upbeat sound and lyrics tackle themes of love, disenchantment, change, and the effect time has on everything in between.

Since their 2013 beginning and the debut of their first EP, Murmuration, they have toured across the country, sharing the stage with Deluxe, Moving Units, The Chain Gang of 1974, New Young Pony Club, Gardens & Villa, WILDCAT! WILDCAT!, and Stepdad. In their time spent on the road bringing their music to the masses, Great Shapes has had the distinct pleasure of playing CMJ 2015 and Neon Desert Music Festival.

On June 16, 2017, Great Shapes released their sophomore album, Somewhere In Between. Their first single, Brightness, was pressed over 100,000 times in October 2016’s issue of Relix magazine. During their first week on the NACC (North American College & Community Radio) chart, Great Shapes came in as #20 most added, and hit the top 200 chart at #168. The album was recorded in their hometown by Justin Leeah at Sound + Vision Studios (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, At the Drive-In, Conor O’Berst). Some additional recording was done by Manuel Calderon at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX (Beach House, Portugal The Man). The album was mastered by Grammy Award-winner Joe LaPorta (David Bowie, Twin Shadow, The Killers, Foo Fighters) in New York City.
